I interpreted the Ethos water pitch gig as a 'possibility' and the Boston Globe is reporting it as a done deal.

A splash of Damon

And while we're on the subject of water, Pepsi has tapped Matt Damon to help promote the soft-drink giant's Ethos water brand. Pepsi has entered into a partnership to give $2.5 million to Damon's H2O Africa, an on-the-ground nonprofit that sets up clean water projects in Niger, Mali, Senegal, and other African countries, according to a company release. However, Brandweek .com, a New York website that tracks the advertising world, reports that the Oscar-winning Cambridge native will be out pitching for PepsiCo to help the company fight the image that bottled water has been bad for the environment. Quoting a source, Brandweek.com says we could see the Damon print ads by next month.

And another anti-water bottle story today from one of Australia's leading environmentalists, who claims that drinking bottled water is so anti-environment that it should be made as unfashionable as smoking.
